Where do these scare stories come from, there seems to be always one around the net somewhere!
Most annoying: I dug out my old Acer lappie that I had reprogrammed with Windows 7 and fitted a well used a Samsung 830 SSD. This hasn't been used in around a year. Yeah, it needed loads of updates, but it all works fine. No loss of anything.
I wonder what Make/type/age/useage SSDs they were testing?
Being cynical about it, I wonder if this is a way to shift maybe large over stocks of spinning drives?
